I myself is a owner of a steed 5 d/c bakkie. to be true this is now the second bakkie i owned from gwm.
I can't see why should we buy other models while these bakkies is affordable and still have great features and reliabilities in it's drive train as well.
Look at the new up coming Steed 5 with the VGT engine with a six speed gearbox. Isn't it prove by now that gwm is on it's way to satisfy the public with more great specialties in the near future, and still with good prixes, you couldn’t buy any better.
Ya, it is true to say, here and there the chinese can make improment on performence and quility. But this will be a standard factor that will soon compare with the rest of the marked.
But still i'm a GWM fan, spesialy in the bakkie series and i am very proud to drive one, this bakkie's fuel consumption is between 10.5 and 11 km per liter, where can you get any pick up truck that can prove better then that?
In the meantime, anyone who will made bad comments on the GWM is one that have a GWM, or own one!
1st owned steed3 for two yrs--milage 20 000km--no hassels what so ever
fell in love with steed5--so far so good--no hassels--dont bad mouth a vehicle if u did not own one--i skeem its monies worth.
Will any of the steed models hold up on long distances and be reliable. Must have enough power to pass other slower vehicle.Going up gradients without gearing down as well.[not fully laiden]

I have a Steed 5 2.5 TCI Double cab except for basic maintenance and services im so satisfied with the 128000KM i did with it i am buying the Steed 5E now
Hi my bakkie is doing the same thing. I changed the injectors, still not starting. Please let me know if you sorted your problem out.
I've just bought the 2,4L Steed 5(Petrol) Double cab.
The bakkie sounds like the engine revs are too high at 130Km's although its only shows around 3500rpm.
Is this normal on this bakkie?
Check that your rev counter is working properly.
Thank you for the feedback.
I did have it checked and I am told that it is correct.
Seems like the top speed on this vehicle is 130KM's at 3500rpm which is poor performance for a 2,4L petrol engine.
My gwm steed 5 2.8 dci now and than when you drive and you change gears it revs high what can be the problem
Ask the workshop manager at gym
Gwm steed5 2.5TCI Engine light goes on and then the engine cuts out when you restart no power ? keeps on doing that all the time
Engine light indicates a fault and you must get a diagnostics machine plugged into the vehicle to see what fault codes come up.
Fault code : P1012 V.V.T intake camshaft position
Aah. So it looks like a cam position sensor. Ask the techies . what the cost is to replace this sensor. One can also get the part number and shop for it online and have it installed.
Hi Can anybody tell me where to find a workshop manual for the GMW STEED 5 DIESEL?
I wish know the estimate installment per month
Hi i own gwm steed 5 ,2.2 .5rd gear getting stuck wen driving ,have to use 2 hands to pull it out ,
I have a 2013 Steed 5 Worhorse with 140,000km on the clock. Average cost per service is less than R2,000. When brakes was replaced it cost incl of the service R3,000. If after 5 years I get half the money back it will still be a bargain. For the price of a new GWM you will get a bakkie with almost 200,000k on the clock. I use my bakkie daily.
Steed 5 2 VGT 2018 model. I find it very difficult to move from any gear into second gear. Why?
Please help guyz i want to trade in my NP200 and buy GWM double cab,just want to know the perfomance of GWM.
I want to know what makes the Steed 5 D/C loose power even on level road.
I had the same problem, but it was the sensor on the fuel filter, maybe you need drain water inside, it will be sensing water but not. Indicating at the dash.
I have a 2017 Steed5 2.2 double cab. Great bakkie, quite happy with it,the only problem that I have is the noisy hubcaps. Can someone help with this?
Hi! i own a 2016 double cab steed 5, 2.2 petrol in Namibia. the car has high revs and low power, steering shaft problem with a knock type noise- a piece from the steering shaft must always be replaced but you have to fight with the mechanics at the dealer because South Africa is apparently always scolding for accepting to replace it.even my petrol consumption is high. the car is just not worth buying for that price, especial through the bank.very low standards and its it's a loss. recently, oil is leaking on the engine block, aparently it is the seals that are worn out, in less then two years at 35000ks. i opted to buy 2 toyota bakkies for the business rather then four gwms.
Cant understand why you guys all have problems. I have a 2016 steed 5 2.2 the up model with all airbags etc. I have 115000km in almost 3 years, this bakkie runs at 185km/hr when i push it. and at 160 with a trailer. my consumption is about 10 ltr/100km. whicj i think is great. this poor bakkie only gets serviced every 30 000km as I dont have time for that and when I do service it and do the brakes it costs under R900, as all the parts are Toyota Hiace parts. Brakes are R110 for Ferrodo. and R1450 at the agents ( nuts) 10 minutes to do both sides. The 2.2 seems to be the best out there as what I have heared about the rest of the range it sucks. Happy motoring
